The paper describes an anemograph system suitable for installation at airports for distant reccording of windspeed and wino direction. Wind direction is recorded on a strip chart recorder, whose recording head is coupled electrically through a selsyn generator and receiver to a windvane. Directions are recorded from North through East to North and North through West to North over a total of 72°, Wind speeds are recorded on a 0.1 MA DO milliammeter recorder by amplifying the AC output from a cup generator anemometer by a transistorized amplifier. Provision is also made in the. recorders for changing the chart speeds.
